Below some important information about our Kilimanjaro and Safari equipment
Sleeping Tents on Kilimanjaro
Our tents on Kilimanjaro are four season mountain tents designed to withstand the windy conditions and cold temperatures encountered when sleeping at high altitude.
They are designed to be 3 person tents, however we will sleep no more than 2 climbers in our tents.
In addition our tents feature a seperate external vestibule to shelter shoes, poles and other gear.
Sleeping Tents on Safari
When booking a camping safari
(not to be confused with a tented camp), we will pitch a tent for you at a public campsite designated by the Tanzania Parks Department.
Public campsites feature shared public bathroom facilities.
Our safari tent is a waterproof, 1 door tent with 2 windows that feature indoor & outdoor closures.
Along with the sleeping tents we will provide a foam sleeping pad, as well as foldable tables and chairs.
Dining Tents on Kilimanjaro
Weather conditons permitting you may chose to have your meal outside against the backdrop of the magnificent Mt. Kilimanjaro, or in case the weather does not cooperate, we provide dining tents for all group sizes.
Along with the dining tents we provide foldable tables and chairs.
Private Toilet Tents
Some of our climbers are not thrilled about using public toilets on Kilimanjaro. Therefore, except for backpacker and budget climbs, we include one private toilet tent per four climbers on our mid-range, 4-star and luxury cimbs.
This portable toilet will be set up at every campsite and is available for the exclusive use of our private climb groups.
It can be used just like a regular toilet at home. A few hand pumps will release water to rinse out the bowl.
The toilet crew is responsible for cleaning, maintaining and transporting the toilet between camps.
Our climbs include a locally sourced foam sleeping pad.
These foam matresses are 2.5 inches thick and 78 inches long so they can accomodate even a tall person.
Unlike inflatable pads, our foam pads will not deflate from the cold or risk being punctured. In addition they are great at insulating a person against the cold on the ground and tend to be warmer and more comfortable due to their thickness.
Our sleeping pads are inspected and disinfected between climbs.
In case you do not wish to carry many items with you in your luggage, especially bulky items such as a sleeping bag or a down jacket, please see our rental equipment pice list here.
